to be to be a little uneasy. gwen: the president did? >> i thought the president seemed a little bit defensive in that press conference. >> well, he's got a lot to be defensive about when it comes to this. think of the early summer of the arab spring, the president showed up ste -- at the state department and gave a big speech about how much money the united states was going to offer to help the arab spring. i looked at how much of that money was gone. two years later, less than half. some of the proposals never even made it to congress. i think the president didn't want to risk congress voting it down the handing out $200 million and so forth, perfectly nirkse but we're not talking about what the united states did after the fall of the soviet union. not talking about the marshall plan. we're talking about tiny amounts of money for huge humanitarian problems. >> and abdullah said he expects the bill to be a billion dollars by the end of this year. gwen: really? i thought it was interesting when the president seemed to get a little bit defensive in both press conferences. asked what he was goin

? >> as the president insisted, israel has its open right to self-defense. obviously it looks -- understandably looks at iran from being in the neighborhood with a greater sense of urgency than we might -- i think they have the same strategic objective, and the president has been clear, and the prime minister has noted that, that the united states will prevent iran from gaining an actual nuclear weapon. i thought the prime minister showed a little bit more flexibility than perhaps he did a year ago. he accepted the fact that if iran makes a decision to build a weapon -- they haven't done that yet -- it would still take time for that to happen, and time for either israel or the united states or both to respond. so, i actually think that from this trip, there's a greater convergence not only of interests but rhetoric, that we have seen, say in the past year. >> shepard: the rhetoric from iran to wipe tel aviv off the mop in the event of a strike. at it specific, direct, and inflammatory. >> it is an escalation from what they said before. there's been an understand that should military action be necessa

at this time. another factor on iran. the new defense minister in israel, who is not viewed as hawkish on the issue. i cannot find one member of the security establishment that is for containment. i have been looking for years, and i cannot find them. right now, their view is if america is leading, holdback, but if america does not lead, the same people that have been urging caution will be the same people urging israel forward. i think a certain level, the tone will be very different from the past defense minister, but the message will not be fundamentally different. what about the other issues? here i think another issue that could come up in the meeting is the issue of circassia. it definitely will come up. in an operational sense, there is a debate brewing in israeli policy circles about how active israel should be in going after hezbollah convoys, taking out weaponry. i find there is nobody in israel that i met that since the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake --of all the people i talk to, cannot meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. the

the court therefore strike down the defense of marriage act which is one of the cases it will be hearing this week which bans federal benefits for same sex couples legally married in their state. would you streak down that as federal interferences in a state matter? >> you know, i think it is a really complicated issue. i always said that the states have the right to decide. i do believe in traditional marriage. kentucky decided it and i don't think the federal government should tell us otherwise. there are states that have decided in the opposite fashion and i don't think the federal government should tell anybody or any state government how they should decide this. marriage has been a state issue you for hundreds and hundreds of years. doma is complicated because it does provide protection for the states from the federal government part of it federalizes the issue. there is a chance the court could strike down the federalization part of it. if they do i think the way to fix it is maybe to try to make all of the laws more neutral towards the issue. i don't want the government promoting
